Meags Fitzgerald

Meags Fitzgerald is on the move. As an artist, illustrator, crafter, writer and performer, she’s worked in cities around the world and is currently residing in Montreal.  Over the last few years, her geeky fascination with vintage photobooths has evolved and Meags has become one of the world’s leading experts on the subject.  Presently, she’s combining her love of drawing and knowledge of photobooths in a graphic novel, Photobooth: A Biography, which will be out with Conundrum Press in Spring 2014.

Meags also produces beautiful illustrations for magazines, musicians and comedians, under the moniker Two Hands Two Crowns. She has a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts Degree in Drawing and a Post-Degree Certificate in Design. In her spare time she produces original silkscreened and sewn items, makes little animations and does improv theatre. Meags has many collections, a few too many hobbies and not enough cats.

1. What is your hometown?

I was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Though, the place that I get those heart feelings for is Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, where my extended family lives.

Hometown2. With what fictional character do you most identify?

Amélie Poulain, but you should know that I feel really embarrassed admitting this.

3. In the movie of your life, cast an actor to play you.

Bill Murray, for his versatility.

4. What work of art speaks to your soul?

The Parker Brothers board game, Masterpiece. It’s an art auction game with 50 paintings from the Art Institute of Chicago’s collection. The early appreciation of art history it instilled in me is probably more impactful than my experiences of any one piece now.   

5. What books are you currently reading or recommending?

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain

The Property by Rutu Modan

6. What song or album is currently in heavy rotation on your iPod?

I’m in love with all of Beirut’s albums, but I do my best not to overplay them.

7. What’s the last movie that made you cry?

I have tear ducks that involuntarily flow during most dramatic movies/ TV shows/ trailers/ commercials. The last movie that I ugly-sob-cried during, was Barney’s Version, I saw it at a cinema in Halifax.

Movie Cry8.  Cat person or dog person?

!!! CAT PERSON !!!

Cat Person9. What is more important, truth or kindness?

I think everyone has their own personal version of truth but kindness is fairly universal. So, kindness. 

10.    How do you define sin?

A silly idea that some men made up a while ago, along with a bunch of other rules.

11.    How do you define virtue?

See above answer, this falls under “a bunch of other rules.”

12.   Design your headstone: What does it say? What does it look like?

My tombstone will be a hot air balloon, so all my loved ones can go for a ride while they dispose of my remains. It will be a sunny day.

Tombstone

 Bonus Question: Who would you like to see answer these questions?

Brianne Nord-Stewart, a very talented Vancouver filmmaker.
